Sacramento and the Gold Country Sights

American River Bicycle Trail

Fodor's Review

The Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail, as it's formally called, runs for 32 miles from Old Sacramento to Beals Point in Folsom. Walk or ride a bit of it and you'll see why local cyclists and pedestrians adore its scenic lanes, if not always each other: confrontations do occur between humorless speeders and meandering gawkers. Enjoy great views of the American River and the bluffs overlooking it. Bring lunch or a snack. Pretty parks and picnic areas dot the trail.
